There are no rules.That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules.That is what invention is about.

Sold Out! Term 4, 2022 Art Taster Course ~ Tuesdays - 4:00PM - 5:30PM - October 11 - December 6
"My daughter looks forward to the class as the highlight of her week and has already produced so many beautiful pieces. She describes the space Melissa has created as "magical" and loves the variety of the classes. Melissa has a wonderful ability to encourage and guide her young artists, allowing them enough autonomy to produce unique results. It's really the best value for money and so much more engaging than other art classes she's attended in the past. 10/10"
This is a fun, hands-on Art Taster course! A range of exciting visual arts sessions are provided, aimed at engaging young artists on a journey of discovery, experimentation and problem-solving. There are absolutely NO prerequisite skills and classes are deliberately planned to ensure all learning styles are supported- every child is an artist (Picasso)!
Return artists are most welcome! The open-ended nature of our classes and mediums ensures students can continue to come back, and enjoy different experiences and results each time.
Classes are limited to ensure individual, personalised attention and are suited to independent, school aged learners from Year 1 (6-16 years only please). The multi-aged nature of the group allows everyone to be a leader, a friend, a learner and an encourager. In my experience there are so many benefits to working with multi ages in small and supported settings, particularly when children share similar interests and passions. The forming of new friendships is a wonderful bonus of our term courses.
Alphabet Kids Art Studio is a fully equipped home studio, located in Frankston South. The studio environment is welcoming, and engaging - without being precious! We expect a lot of fun, a lot of colour and a lot of mess! Likewise, please ensure your child/ren dress appropriately. Smocks are highly recommended!
All materials and services are supplied (this may include but is not limited to; clay, glazes, kiln firings, resin, dyes, paints, sculpting materials including plasters, grouts, modroc, printing materials, waxes etc.).
Classes run from 4:00PM - 5:30PM over 8 weeks. A variety of fun, hands on experiences is offered each term. Clay is included in every Art Taster term course.
Course Dates: October 11, 18, 25, November 8,15, 22, 29 and December 6.
Final Class: Tuesday December 6
